The tables are REALLY starting to turn on Donald Trump. After spending decades of his life abusing others, lying his ass off, and being corrupt in every way possible, it seems as though it’s finally catching up to him.
Michael Cohen was Trump’s personal lawyer and all-around “fixer” for basically everything. Cohen had taken the fall for Trump so many times, only to be abused and dismissed by the ungrateful Tweeter in Chief. Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is putting pressure on him, it seems as though Cohen is taking on a very different attitude and is planning to flip on Trump.
Recently, Cohen stated that his country and family would come first in the investigation — which is a far cry from his old attitude of defending Trump at all costs. His new comments should concern the president even more. In private conversations with his friends, Cohen has stated that he doesn’t believe Trump will pardon him, leaving even more suspicion that Cohen is running out of reasons to defend Trump.
Cohen is currently under federal investigation for financial crimes and corrupt business dealings. While he hasn’t been charged yet, his perceived lack of faith in Trump could be really bad news for the president. A friend of Cohen told CNN:
“I brought up the pardon, and he said, ‘I don’t think so. I just don’t think so.’ He’s certain in his mind that he has been dismissed.”
Cohen also said, “I don’t know what to think anymore.”
Another friend stated that Cohen is not “counting on” being pardoned by Trump. This friend said:
“His mindset is of someone who is operating under the assumption that he is not getting that, though of course he doesn’t know one way or the other.”
Cohen seems to be doing more and more to put distance between himself and Trump. From recently scrubbing Trump from his Twitter profile to acknowledging that Trump has kicked him out of the inner circle and won’t pardon him, it seems as though Cohen knows he’s by himself now. That lack of loyalty may just be the thing to turn things around on Trump.
